These unprecedented times call for a little extra attention when it comes to our wellness and well-being. Taking care of ourselves is more than just being free from illness - although that is high on the list these days!
Wellness means paying attention to our emotional states, our social connections and our support systems. It means stepping away from the computer to take a walk around the block or planning a safe, outdoor outing on the weekend. For you it could look like making space for an online yoga class or downloading a meditation app to use on a daily basis. It could be finding a new recipe for Monday night dinner or sitting down for a phone call with your best friend.
In short, it’s about finding a balance of your physical and mental well-being and your work life. It’s not so much an end goal, but rather small daily changes to your lifestyle.
The upside? Finding a little balance can help with your stress and anxiety and can give you the resiliency you need to handle whatever else life is going to bring.
